I'd pull the ignition switch panel too and look behind it for any shorts to ground and check the terminals with a volt meter...

10/4, will do! Does the dash just lift up when the screws removed or need to remove gauges caps/covers or do anything else? Never pulled the dash before!

I doubt it's going to move up too much with a zillion wires on it...


The switch itself should pop out...

Thank you, that was the coach’s gift to me! All parking lights and dash light are lit and won’t go off no matter what.

Hmmm?? Well maybe, but I think you probably need the mounting tabs,

I turned off the AT switch and that turned off all the parking lights outside as well as the TV upfront which I thought I was on a 110 circuit. How is that work?

Also, the back light on all the gauges, upper and lower dash still on! Where do they get power from if 12 volt circuits are shut?

Very confusing!

Default Light switch

Shahin, i think the switch you need is the one with the tabs for mounting, I looked at the picture of the switch you have and it does not have the tabs. You may be able to use the tabs of the old switch. The TV outlet in interlocked by a DC circuit that prevents it from working if the ignition is on, somehow this could be affected when the A/T is activated.
